Test Question

Section 2

In the medieval texts covered in class, such as Bisclavret”, and   “Of the Prodigies of Our Times, and First of a Wolf which Conversed with a Priest”, the animal transformations are unusual but are accepted.  It is the focus on speech and understanding that is one of the determining factors on the humanity of the werewolves encountered.  Why did medieval writers focus on this aspect of humanity, and how does it tie in with other examples of the medieval post/human experience?
